Background Simulation-based medical education enables knowledge, skills and attitudes to be acquired for all healthcare professionals in a safe, educationally orientated and efficient manner. Procedure-based skills, communication, leadership and team working can be learnt, be measured and have the potential to be used as a mode of certification to become an independent practitioner. Results Simulation-based training initially began with life-like manikins and now encompasses an entire range of… 

Simulation in Medical Education

TLDR
The art and science of simulated learning, the simulation fidelity continuum (low to high, multimode) and how it can be tailored to the learner’s needs are discussed and future directions of simulation-based education are concluded.

0136 Developing safe clinical practice through simulation in pharmacy education

TLDR
Undergraduate exposure to simulation for pharmacy students has provided a unique opportunity to integrate the fundamentals of non-technical skills and interprofessional team relationships that underpin good, safe clinical practice.

Simulation in medical education

TLDR
This article builds an argument for the use of simulation techniques to enhance patient safety and points the readers to the AMEE Guide No. 501 on simulation, which is written as a practical manual on building a simulation programme in healthcare education.

Simulation: A Training Resource for Quality Care and Improving Patient Safety

TLDR
This chapter will review the contribution provided by the curricular integration of simulation-based education as a tool to train technical and nontechnical issues and how this work can be done for the safety of patients through a standardized training plan, under controlled and evaluated processes.

Biomedical Simulation: Evolution, Concepts, Challenges and Future Trends.

TLDR
The evolutionary movements of biomedical simulation are reviewed, including a review of the Portuguese initiatives and nationwide programs, and basic but essential concepts in clinical simulation, together with some considerations on assessment, validation and reliability are presented.

Patient safety training simulations based on competency criteria of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

TLDR
There is emerging evidence that simulation can be used in training efforts to reduce medical errors related to medical knowledge and patient care and there remains limited evidence on its impact to improve patient safety related to more complex competencies of practice-based learning and systems-based practice.

0169 Simulation in acute medicine: A novel multi-disciplinary team training programme mapped to the UK core medical training curriculum

TLDR
A multidisciplinary high-fidelity simulation program in Acute Medicine at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh (RIE), mapped to the CMT curriculum, suggests increased confidence in the management of acute medical emergencies and improved working within a MDT.

Review of Simulation in Pediatrics: The Evolution of a Revolution

TLDR
An online search of original and review articles related to simulation and pediatric medical education is conducted to provide an overview of the role and utility of simulation in pediatrics.

9 Low fidelity simulation in a high fidelity world

TLDR
The authors conclude that simple part task trainers, low fidelity models, still have a valuable part to play in medical education and care should be taken however not to disregard lower fidelity models as they still provide proven effective learning, enable the teaching of non-technical skills and facilitate knowledge delivery.

Technical-skills training in the 21st century.

TLDR
It is no longer acceptable, or appropriate, for students at any level of training to practice new skills on patients, even if they have a patient's explicit consent.
